  International Summer School on Events, Publish/Subscribe and Systems
          August 16th-21st, 2009, Oslo, Norway


               Organized and sponsored by
       Canada-Norway Partnership in Higher Education (CANOE) and
          EuroSys, the European chapter of ACM SIGOPS




The summer school aims at bringing together graduate students,
researchers, and practitioners interested in event processing,
publish/subscribe, and systems research. Topics covered by the school

       * Events, event processing, and CEP applications
       * Event stream processing and applications
       * Publish/subscribe, messaging, real-time data distribution
       * Smart grids and sense-and-response systems
       * Lessons learned from developing large-scale systems

Lectures are given by renowned researchers and industry practitioners,
and combine theory and foundations, concepts and algorithms, and
experience reports and lessons learned.  Lectures also feature
advanced topics, research questions, and group discussions. Particular
emphasis is put on encouraging active participation in discussions,
brainstorming, and break-out sessions. Participants will have the
opportunity to demonstrate their research in poster presentations.

The Summer School will be held at the Sundvolden Hotel, one of the
oldest Norwegian hotels. The area's picturesque landscape is enclosed
by a number of fjords and lies at the foot of the Krokskogen mountain.
At the same time, it is conveniently accessible by bus from both Oslo
and the Gardermoen airport (Oslo airport).

The Summer School is hosted by the Networks and Distributed Systems
Group at the University of Oslo.
